    I am going to stay on property We are staying 13 nights but only doing an 8 day ticket as we are going off property for the first few nights. When do my tickets activate? WE do not want to go to Disney parks until the 4th day of our trip.

    Hi Jennifer!  Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The validity dates for your tickets will depend on how they were purchased.  If your tickets were purchased as part of a Walt Disney Travel Company room and ticket package, your days of admission may be used beginning on the date of check-in through the date of check-out, or the standard validity window (see below), whichever is longer.

    If you purchased your tickets separately from your room reservation, you likely selected a start date for your ticket.  An 8-Day ticket expires 12 days after the selected start date.  Adding the Park Hopper Plus Option to your tickets adds one more day to the validity window.

    If you have linked your tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you should be able to see the validity dates when viewing "Tickets & Passes" in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope that helps!  If you need additional assistance with your tickets, contact a friendly Cast Member who can help you sort out your tickets.

    Enjoy your stay!
